    Looks like Nissan is finally admitting there is a problem with our side curtain air bags.

    SERVICE CAMPAIGN

    ACU REPROGRAM (AIRBAG)

    2012 NISSAN XTERRA PRO4X
    VIN:
    EFFECTIVE DATE: June 22, 2017
    PRINT
    SUMMARY

    The current Air Bag Control Unit (ACU) rollover-sensing calibration logic could allow for unintended curtain air bag deployment in rare instances occurring under certain unique driving scenarios, usually involving unpaved roads or off-road where one side of the vehicle is higher than the other.

    REMEDY

    Nissan is conducting a Voluntary Service Campaign to reprogram the ACU in 2004-2014 Titan, 2005-2014 Frontier, and 2005-2014 Xterra vehicles. Nissan authorized dealers will reprogram the ACU with updated software. The ACU reprogramming will improve rollover-sensing calibration to address certain unique driving scenarios, and help prevent unintended rollover curtain air bag deployment, while maintaining the design intent for deployment in rollover crashes. This service, which is conducted at no charge to you for parts and labor, should take approximately two (2) hours to complete. However, your Nissan dealer may require your vehicle for a longer period of time based upon their work schedule.

    Please contact your Nissan Dealer with any questions or comments about your Nissan.

    Finally got around to calling my dealer today. They can see the recall, but Nissan hasn't made the info available to them yet. Told me to wait until I get the letter. Jerks. Wanted to take care of this before ECXC.
